The Preston High School agriculture department is completing work on a second greenhouse near the Bill Craner Agriculture Building and it should be operational for students and instructors on Oct. 1.
Several months ago the ag department received a grant from Monsanto Corporation to help with expenses of building the second greenhouse. The frame of the structure was completed this spring. Students are installing translucent, insulated, polycarb panels over the “spine” this week.
“The new facility will give us a bunch more room for students to work in. We’re not necessarily going to grow more plants in the greenhouse. But it will allow us to grow our program,” said Josh Evans, an ag science teacher who started the program.
